Ontario’s IVF Funding Program Makes a Merry Christmas for Infertility Patients:
It’s a hopeful and Merry Christmas for Ontario infertility patients. Ontario’s promise to create an IVF funding program became reality this week with the announcement that 50 clinics throughout Ontario will now be offering a funded IVF (in vitro fertilization) cycle. That’s a Happy Holiday announcement for the many infertility patients in Ontario who have been struggling to access affordable infertility treatment necessary to help them start a family.
It’s been several long years since a group of Ontario infertility patients, called Conceivable Dreams, started advocating for reinstatement of IVF funding. With Ontario’s IVF funding program there are now four provinces that offer some contribution to the cost of infertility treatment.
Ontario will now fund IVF and artificial insemination for couples and individuals who need help to conceive. That’s powerful news for the thousands of infertility patients in Ontario.
